New Delhi : Enrolled under NTPC’s ‘Super 30 girls’ Program, a Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) initiative introduced by India's largest power generating company, 18 girls, out of 25, have successfully qualified for the 'IITJEE' mains.

The year-long residential program, implemented with an objective to coach students belonging to economically weaker families, brought these aspirants a step closer to fulfilling their dream of studying in some of India’s premier institutes.

As part of this noble initiative, rolled out in association with the Centre for Social Responsibility and Leadership (CSRL), 'NTPC' bears the entire cost of boarding, lodging and coaching for the girl students belonging to underprivileged families.

After an MoU was signed between 'NTPC' Northern Region Head Quarter in Lucknow and 'CSRL', New Delhi, NTPC & CSRL jointly initiated the 77.03 lakh-program for 30 girls selected from families living in the vicinity of 'NTPC' plants in the northern region. During the tenure of the project, the students were provided with free stay & food and were imparted coaching and training to sit for entrance examinations (IIT/JEE/NIT) that would help them gain admission to eminent institutes in the country.

Started on 1st July 2018, the program, at present, has 25 girls studying at the “NTPC Super 30 Girl” center in Varanasi. These students were selected from various Government schools in Varanasi and Lucknow.
